Chemicals used to make methamphetamine were removed by police from an Indiana Walmart restroom last week, according to The Associated Press.

A store employee called police after seeing a man enter the bathroom with a backpack and leave without it. The employee discovered a working meth lab inside the facilities, the AP report said.

The restroom was closed for decontamination. Police say some meth makers leave the drug's explosive ingredients in public places as to not risk explosions in their own home.
